 ==== ====Watch this amazing videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aauZmSnacw ==== ====Each gardener has his or her own set of gardening guidelines that correspond to certainpredetermined gardening styles. If you know your gardening style and if you can apply that style tocreating an organic garden, then you have pretty much captured an edge over other gardeningenthusiasts. But, if you do not have a gardening style that you can apply to organic vegetablegrowing, then you could be at a strong disadvantage. What are the different styles of gardeningthat actually apply to successful organic vegetable harvesting? Here are some of the types thatyou could consider: Residential Gardening This is the most common of all gardening techniques. It is often referred to as "backyardgardening". If you are just a novice and not seasonally experienced in vegetable gardening, thenresidential gardening is your best approach. The primary purpose of the residential garden is tofeed a family. A steady supply of home grown vegetables can not only feed your family now, ifyou understand canning and preserving, your garden can nourish your family long after theproduction period of your garden has ended. The second appeal of residential gardening lies in its aesthetic appeal. Your garden can add colorand depth to your landscape. It is quite transforming to see what was once only grass, a woodendeck, or a concrete balcony develop into an eye pleasing sculpture. Residential gardening does not require a great deal of space. A window sill, deck, balcony or othersmall area that has sufficient light can easily produce a small crop. These small confined areasare easy to monitor and at the same time, easy to maintain. Protecting your garden from pests ismuch easier in a smaller area. The great thing about residential gardening is the ease with which ittransforms the gardening wannabe into the gardening professional. It takes the rookie, having noknowledge of planting, growing, and harvesting, to a level of understanding where other gardeningstyles become the dream and the possibility. Specialized Gardening Specialized gardening usually involves non-residential areas. Common examples of specializedgardening include amusement parks, botanical gardens, zoos, commercial landscaping alonghighway right of ways, and many more. Making the landscape more attractive seems to be themost common underlying theme of the specialized garden. These landscaping endeavors arerarely the responsibility of a single person. Often times a staff of botanists and gardeners worktogether to maintain the garden's aesthetic attractiveness. These gardens are often created tosupport or deliver revenue to their owners or the organizations supporting them. 
 
Specialized gardens rarely sport vegetables like corn, tomatoes, potatoes, peas, or beans. They,in agreement with their type, focus more on the special or more rare type of flora. Unique flowers,shrubs, even trees are often found in these areas. But, when a specialized garden does focus onvegetable planting, wide row techniques, sewing seeds in a wide band rather than in a single row,are most often applied. Impact Gardening By definition, impact gardening focuses on getting the most out of a small space. It involves usinga relatively small gardening area and finding ways to maximize its gardening potential. In order toaccomplish this objective, plants are strategically organized and systematically planted in a"crowded" format. This type of gardening requires a basic knowledge of plant types; annuals,perennials, shrubs, trees, and even ground cover. Understanding the types of plants most suitedto the environment and the climate is paramount to successful impact gardening. Impact gardening requires planning. A haphazard approach will not work. A layout of whichplants will be placed where is paramount to successful impact growing. The best approach is toactually draw out a schematic of the garden labeling specific areas and then filling those areaswith the appropriate plants. These designs or surveys should be as detailed as possible to includeplant specifics and cost analysis. There are four basic steps to successful impact gardening. Step one, survey a space for the garden and mark off the specific site. It is best to have the longside of the plot aligned with the sun, from east to west. This helps keep the plants from burning inthe summer heat, and ruining your crops.Step two, design the garden. It should be attractive yet maintain its functionality.Step three, make long thin beds, eight feet longer than they are wide. This makes it easy to weedand plant. Build the bed frames out of long 2x8's. If you make several, you can lay them end toend, parallel to the sun.Step four, use soaker hoses to water. Place them up and down the rows, about one foot from theedges of the bed. Indoor Gardening Growing plants indoors is not only a science, it is an art. This type of gardening can be as smallas a few potted plants kept on the coffee table or near the front door; or as large as a greenhousewith thousands of plant varieties housed in a climate controlled environment. These greenhousesor conservatories are designed and built with controlled systems for heating and air conditioning,whatever the plants require. Unfortunately this hot house type of gardening is more suitable to thecommercial grower because of the expense factor involved. For the home owner, the greatest benefit of indoor gardening is the simple fact that plants can begrown year round, completely independent of extreme climatic conditions like heat, cold, wind, orrain. Light is the most common limiting factor for indoor gardening. Most plants do not do wellindoors, so it is important to match the light needs of a particular plant with the amount of light youcan offer it. There are three general light categories--high, medium and low light. An easy way to
 
measure how much light is in a particular area is to use a light meter, which is typically available atlocal nurseries, or simply hold your hand between the source of light and the spot where the plantis to be set. The amount of shadow gives a rough indication of available light. If there is no shadowor if a shadow is difficult to see, then that is an indication of low light. Water Gardening If you like low supervision gardening and love fish and aquatic plants, then water gardening is yourstyle. Perhaps the most important consideration in water gardening is location selection. Mostaquatic plants and fish need plenty of sun, so a place that gets 6-8 hours of direct sunlight is yourbest bet. Choose a site away from tall shrubs and trees. This site will then provide the bestlighting and hopefully prevent the accumulation of leaf debris on the pond surface. Planning is once again very important. Make sure you apply both common sense and some basicgardening principles to your site plan before you begin construction. Consider the overall size ofyour property, the size of your site selection, and your ability to maintain your garden before youscoop the first shovel of dirt. It goes without saying, small ponds are best for small properties. Acontainer on a deck may be all that your need in accordance with the space you have available.Features like waterfalls, rock work, lighting and fountains are budget dependent. They may addstyle, but they could be overly costly. Aquatic plants should cover no more than 50 - 60 percent of the water surface. Some are freefloating while others are marginals or partially submerged. Selection depends on pond size andyour personal preference. Water lilies are very popular and can add drama and fragrance even insmall gardens. Some plants oxygenate the water and they help keep the water clear and the poolhealthy. Fish can be a beneficial addition, because of their scavenging activities. They naturallyclean up debris that would otherwise accumulate in the garden. They also can help controlmosquito larva, and other insect development. Community Gardening Community gardening is becoming quite popular especially in highly populated urban areas. Itinvolves concentrated efforts from different members of the community to help plant, maintain, andthen harvest a garden. It is a huge undertaking, but the members of the community are givenautonomy to style their areas in whichever way they choose. Locally, the Master Gardnerprogram, through local Agricultural Extension Services, can provide just the right atmosphere for acommunity to plant a garden, maintain its integrity, and harvest its produce. Neighborhoods pull together and transform vacant lots into green space. Building tenants gatheron rooftops to plant and grow vegetables. Everyone shares in the responsibility and the harvest.This is community gardening in its purest form. These community gardens are a great way to getboth children and adults involved in beautifying the neighborhood while at the same time workingwith nature. No matter which style suits your needs best, it can be effectively applied to organic gardening.Each gardening style requires some level of planning and site preparation. Once planting iscomplete, the actual work of gardening begins. Caring for the plants in your garden is very similarto caring for your pets. They need regular food and water. Their space needs to be cleaned or
